  • Here's some sound (90 or so seconds) from "A Crooked Line", a documentary I worked on in 2007 and 2008:

    As the cameraman/director and producer were setting up the shot, I taped a man playing flute who was balancing on a log along a waterway.
    Some kids showed up to cool off and made this moment as much about the sound of happiness and water as the man playing the flute.
